The Citizens former skipper has backed the club's reported pursuit of the Argentine star

Vincent Kompany is hoping Lionel Messi does end up joining Manchester City and believes the Barcelona legend could help the club end their Champions League drought.

Messi handed in a shock transfer request this week with Pep Guardiola's side the strong favourites to sign the Argentine should he secure a Camp Nou exit.

Having previously played under Guardiola, Messi reportedly favours a move to the Etihad with City's manager also seemingly keen on a reunion after the two held initial talks about a move.
